I am having a problem, that when I run Snort with the -D flag the card
is not running in PROMISC mode.
I can run snort with from the command line using
./snort -b -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -h xxx.xxx.xxx.0/24 -i eth1
and everything runs fine and if I run ifconfig the card shows as " UP
BROADCAST RUNNING PROMISC MULTICAST "
when I run the following
/usr/local/bin/snort -D -b -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -h
xxx.xxx.xxx.0/24 -i eth1
I don't see any traffic in the logs and if I run ifconfig the card
shows as "UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST".
Has anyone seen this problem before (I saw similar problems going back
through the snort-users mailing list but nothing that fixed my problem).
Other required info :
I am running snort 1.8.3
I am running the 2.2.14-15 linux kernel.
I am also using libnet-1.0-1mdk, libtermcap-devel-2.0.8-16mdk,
Any ideas ?? (do I need a new version of libpcap?)
